    • How can I keep my site safe and secure?

After the talk, we’ll all have a drink and make the WordPress community in Luxembourg live and breath! 😀

WordPress Luxembourg

The WordPress Luxembourg Community started in July 2016 as a simple informal meetup founded by Laurent Maillard. With the support of the WordPress Foundation, it aimed at becoming the local branch of the global WordPress community.The monthly meetup quickly picked up with a fast-growing member base (183+ as of today) and broad range of attendees from experienced professional developers and designers to less experienced end-users. Mathieu Sarrasin officially joined Laurent as a co-organizer in March 2017, to help the community grow further and organize bigger events.

Everyone is welcome!

No matter whether you are an expert developer or a hobby blogger, or if you have never used WordPress at all but are interested in learning more and getting started, for a personal project or for your next company website, you are welcome to join!

Every meetup is open to everyone and we do our best to provide valuable information, ideas and tips for every profile!
